If your pet hates having their paws handled, wiped, or nails done this workshop is a great place to start. Over time your dog's stress surrounding the procedure can snowball making the process increasingly unpleasant and even dangerous. The goal of this workshop is to help you teach your dog that working cooperatively makes the process more enjoyable and less scary through consent training, desensitization and counter conditioning. We'll even discuss some awesome between trim tricks to keep confidence high!
